ICD-10

The World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is the global standard which categorises and reports diseases in order to compile health information related to deaths, illness or injury; the current version is at 10th revision. All inpatient episodes and day cases that contain diagnoses must be recorded to the mandated version of ICD.

ICD-10 is published by the WHO and is updated in the UK every three years. Previous versions are listed below, along with the financial year in which they were mandated for use. The implementation date for each version is always 01 April:

ICD-10 5th Edition Errata

A number of errors have been identified in the printed ICD-10 5th Edition volumes published by the World Health Organization (WHO). As a result we have compiled a single errata list which contains all changes that must be made in the printed ICD-10 5th Edition books. This can be found in the Coding Clinic Ref 115: NHS ICD-10 5th Edition Errata.

A number of these errors are also replicated in the ICD-10 5th Edition eVersion, therefore we have a set of shared notes, available here, replicating the errata entries which can be imported into the eVersion. 

See also Coding Clinic Ref 12 which contains the changes users need to make in the ICD-10 5th Edition books to the fourth character codes in categories W26 Contact with other sharp objects, X34 Victim of earthquake and X59 Exposure to unspecified factor.
